Hey good to hear you are a fan, I am too! Its great to work for a company when you really believe in their products.
I believe Chris Walker stated somewhere that it cannot upgrade to 1.1
This is no dig on you, I just have to say in reading the boards since we introduced our first BD player, all anyone talked about was these player HAVE to be HDMI 1.3 or they are undesireable, so after a few models and months we are able to deliver this to market, the BDP-95FD HAS HDMI 1.3, and now without profile 1.1 etc we are back in the same perception.
I really believe for those of you that have been waiting to see things shake out before you bought a player will REALLY enjoy the BDP-95FD. It is really a polished player with most features and benefits that anyone is going to want when starting your new blu-ray collection.
There will always be new features and must haves, but you have to find a starting point and just enjoy the kind of entertainment these machines can give you. I hope that makes sense to some, I am as guilty as anyone about wanting the latest and greatest, but sometimes you just have to sit back, relax, and enjoy what's available today knowing there is always someone out there who will buy your old unit when you are ready to upgrade, that is what this hobby is all about
As for another player in December, have not heard a word about one, but anything is possible. I am sure there is a guy in a room working on a 10th gen bluray player somewhere
